DUE JANUARY 24, 2018

 

We are pleased to announce that the application process for the Spring 2018 semester of Hyland’s Hy-Tech Club is now open.

 

HY-TECH CLUB is for students in GRADES 7-12 who want to learn how to code. The Club meets on a weekly basis at Hyland Software's Global Headquarters in Westlake, Ohio.

The first meetings of the SPRING 2018 semester will be FEBRUARY 6 or 7 2018, depending on which section you get in. The semester will run for 12 weeks and conclude in MAY 2018. Students should only apply if they can commit to weekly meetings.
